The Electric Car is Dead...

Long Live the Electric Car!

Soon you'll be hearing a lot about the new 'documentary,' 'Who Killed the Electric Car.' I have not seen it, but it looks like a documentary along the lines of 'Fahrenheit 911,' and 'An Inconvenient Truth.' That is, the filmmakers know the conclusions before they start the project, and then match the facts that suit their views.

Well, since you'll be hearing a lot of guilt-tripping about how you're not doing enough to liberate the US from imported oil, do a little reading on the problems with electric cars.

Of course, one of the great things about the market economy is that it responds to the demands of consumers. As gas prices rise, if electric cars are all that great, someone will build them. As LAWeekly notes, they retain afficianados. And if you want to know more about some of the alternative vehicles available now and in the near future, check out Evfinder.

And according to IMDB, this movie may be your last chance to see Peter Horton and Phyllis Diller in the theaters.
